I’m still alive

Posted by Necia Phoenix on September 8, 2014 in publishing, Real Life |

Hello! We have moved, and are getting settled, and I should be on track here in a couple days. Sorry about this delay. Hope you are all having a good September so far. Share this:

OK, so the house we’re in has a ceiling caving in, multiple bathroom leaks and a landlord who is unwilling to fix it. While I’ve gone to court to try to force him to fix it, that has done nothing to help the situation (but given us LOTS of headaches) and we’re just DONE. ย the […]


No chapter today

My son is in the hospital, awaiting surgery to remove his appendix. Barring any other emergencies, the next chapter should go live thursday.   NPhoenix Share this:


An apology

Posted by Necia Phoenix on July 11, 2014 in Real Life |

Real life pounced me pretty hard last week, and this week is no better. However, next Tuesday the Serial will be back on schedule. I hope I didn’t lose you, and I deeply apologize for my silence regarding it. N. Phoenix   Share this:



Thoughts on Death, Dying, and Grief

Posted by Necia Phoenix on June 2, 2014 in Health and fitness, Real Life |

There are many lines of thinking when it comes to what happens after our bodies give up and what is us, our soul, drifts away into the who knows. The topic is a hot one, wars have been waged, many have been killed over whose idea of the afterlife is the ‘right’ one. But this […]

Some not so good news

Posted by Necia Phoenix on May 28, 2014 in Real Life |

I was just informed that because we didn’t get Connie’s payment in, her place was given away. **sigh** Now connie does have the People to People opportunity next year, but the STEM opportunity (for this summer at least) is not happening. Thank you all for your donations and assistance, your refunds will be applied here […]

J.A. Marlow gave me this project planner back in Jan, but I kinda forgot all about it. Sat night I dusted it off and started planning out projects, setting dates and OCDing on what I want to get done this year. I may have overloaded myself ๐Ÿ˜› but I have a clear cut idea of […]

One of the greatest things about self pubbing, is if you need to change something, you can. If you don’t like the cover, you’re not stuck with the pubbing co going SOL. The Magic Maker is one of my favorite stories, and the first of what I hope, many set in that world. To date […]

Things make up things

Posted by Necia Phoenix on February 19, 2014 in Boost the signal, Real Life |

I don’t usually participate in twitter chats much, usually because I find myself chasing short people into bed around the same time that the chats are taking place. Somehow, tonight, I managed to slip into the #indiechat with the topic on Hugh Howey’s Author Earnings report thingy that has, apparently, whipped up a frenzy of […]



Sunday Serenity

Posted by Necia Phoenix on February 16, 2014 in Real Life, Sunday Serenity |

Whew, it’s been a while since I’ve done this, and I apologize for neglecting my blog here. Since it’s cold and snowy in so many places in the US right now, I thought I’d share a bit of a tropical flashback. It’s the best I can do. ๐Ÿ˜› Have a peaceful sunday! Share this:



Still here

Posted by Necia Phoenix on January 28, 2014 in publishing, Real Life |

I have been sick, still trying to get writing stuff handled. Zbk1 edits are in full swing, shooting for an April 12 release (my birthday). I have some awesome betas who are giving me great input. Have a mini snippage:   Valen handed Zander a small sphere with odd indents and markings on it. Zander […]

2013 Winding Down

Posted by Necia Phoenix on December 25, 2013 in Boost the signal, Real Life, Writing |

2013 is almost over, and I have to say, writing-wise, I didn’t do as much as I’d planned. But what’s done is done and I’m not going to beat myself over the head about it. I’m still writing, and that’s a lot more than a lot of ‘writers’ these days. I’m putting together a 2014 […]

December is here

Posted by Necia Phoenix on December 7, 2013 in NaNo, Real Life, Writing |

Where did the year go? Rhetorical question, I’m not expecting an answer :P. So I did hit the nano words and my brain decided that Dmitri was going to go to sleep and Zander promptly started whispering at me. 0.o Something that I noticed, post nano. I don’t seem to have the post nano brain-dead. […]

How the Myths still affect us

Posted by Necia Phoenix on October 1, 2013 in publishing, Real Life, Web Site stuff, Workshops, Writing |

This post was inspired in great part by Kristine Rusch’s post Story Demands. For years I had this dream of publishing the Zander books traditionally. I pictured them on a bookshelf in a bookstore, I would even go to waldenbooks and find where my name was and kinda scoot the books around so there would […]

Summer Wrap Up

Posted by Necia Phoenix on August 31, 2013 in publishing, Real Life, Writing |

Well writing wise that was slightly disappointing. But I do tend to expect too much from myself. I think, starting next summer, I’ll just suspend big writing goals during the summer. There’s just too much going on. The kids have been in school for a week, I’ve been catching up on housework and stuff. And […]
